Join us for an American Sign Language (ASL) tour of Howardena Pindell: What Remains To Be Seen led by Jennifer Eskridge-Hart. Please meet at the 2nd-floor admissions desk.

The exhibition showcases the groundbreaking work of Howardena Pindell. Spanning the artist's 50-year career, the first half of the exhibition includes the artist’s more abstract early works. The second half includes Pindell's more personal and political art that emerged after 1979.

Please note: This tour is entirely in ASL. Spoken English interpretation is not provided. The MCA offers English-language, docent-led tours daily and a Spanish-language, docent-led tour on the second Tuesday of every month.
